Tablet Coaters

Coating is an important unit operation used to either modify color, give protection, for taste masking or to create a modified release form in pharmaceutical production. GEA is able to offer some novel as well as all typically used coater systems for particles, powders, granules, crystals, pellets and tablets.

Coating Technologies

GEA is an established supplier of coater systems for particles, powders, granules, crystals, pellets and tablets and is able to provide equipment for many of the typically used coating technologies and assist with the selection of the process that best suits your needs.

Your Application, Our Solution

Coating is an important unit operation that’s used extensively in the pharmaceutical industry for the application of non-functional or functional coats (aesthetic, protective or rate controlling polymer films) and for the deposition of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) onto nonpareils (multi-particulate dosage forms). Applications include taste masking, color modification, physical protection and/or to create modified release forms.

Accurate, Controlled, Reliable

Beyond efficient API layering techniques for multi-particulate systems, the pharmaceutical industry has an inherent need to accurately coat objects that are 3–30 mm in length (the most common size range for single-unit solid dosage forms) with APIs. These include tablets for oral administration and other delivery methods (human implantation, for example). Existing coating methods in this size range have coating speed and accuracy/uniformity limitations, particularly for the deposition of low dose APIs onto single unit tablet dosage forms.

From Fluid Bed to Single-Pot to Continuous

Available technologies include fluid bed coating for smaller particles, such as powders, granules, seeds, crystals, pellets, and small tablets, a multipurpose processor that uses proven fluid bed technology to achieve granulation, drying and pellet coating (or tablet coating) in a single processor and a revolutionary tablet coater that accurately deposits controlled amounts of coating materials on tablets, even if they are hygroscopic or friable.
